Colin and I have published a draft describing Colin's scrypt key
derivation function.  We would appreciate review of the document:


The input we are seeking here is primarily review of the cryptographic
aspects and correctness of the algorithm description, although all
comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
